I've been using Soliloquy Sliders (the pro/personal version) on some websites for clients of mine.
The lite version is okay if you only need responsive sliders with very basic functions on a website. Better usability begins with purchasing one of the pro versions, e.g. the possibility to disable navigation arrows and bullets, choosing images for a slider from the media library etc..
Then, around the end of 2015, the developers changed the license pricing of the "personal" version from a one time payment to yearly payments for updates and support. At first I was wondering if I had overseen this earlier, but it seems to me like they changed this without notifying me.
Although I can understand this from an economic perspective, not providing that information is the reason I won't use their plugin in the future.
Or would you like to tell a customer: "Remember that plugin that cost you XX$ when I built your website? Well, now it costs that amount per year, sorry..." (as reasonable as the price may be).
Correct me if I'm wrong.
If you want to quickly throw a few image sliders that are responsive, seamless, and smooth into your pages, Soliloquy is the best bet I've found so far. Most slider interfaces give me a headache--I rarely need so much customization. I like that it makes the slug for the shortcode very clear immediately upon publication. That being said, as other have noted, the Lite version is fairly barebones. Still, it works!
The plugin works really well for most tasks, but the big flaw is that you cannot choose an existing image from your Library. You must upload an image at the time you are creating the slideshow.
Works pretty well overall for my needs. One MAJOR missing feature is the ability to load images from the WP Image Gallery. The plugin only allows you to upload images from your computer. Hard to believe, but true.
Decent plugin overall, tho, I'd say.
Can do with more customising options. Unable for example to style arrows without mid heavy coding!
Okay slider but it seems to have some issues you need to fix in order to get it to work. Limited options as well.
it's really simple to set and use, and works usually fine.
Personally i experienced many issues using Soliloquy (single license) on Workality Lite theme, that forced me to change slider plugin.
Apart from this problem, which is why a give a medium vote, it looks like a pretty good slider plugin.
Pic's not showing either source code is ok. Pics url is ok.
Search on support, search on FAQ, only indication on how to buy the upgrade.
After searching, there is a conflict with other jquery lib.
Go back to captain slider.
